More about which graphic card
  1. Your system is fine. GTX 560 is best choice and note that there is no need to overclock your card for crysis 2 but You must change your psu at least 750w for better graphics and performance without lagging.

    Total cobblers! [:mousemonkey:2] I'm running two, yes two GTX560Ti's in SLi with a 620w PSU.

    Meaning that a single GTX56Ti should be able to run on the PSU you linked to.
  6. GTX560 Ti should be plenty to run Crysis 2 at max settings at that resolution, without overclocking anything, IMO.

    I am worried about your PSU though, it's 500W which could work, but mostly the 2 12V rails at 14 A only provide 336 W on 12 V, which is a bit skimpy for the power consumption of 560Ti and similar cards, in combination with all the other stuff that runs at 12V.

    It's the typical setup of a cheap 500W PSU. You might need to get a proper PSU with around 42A on 3 12V rails, to provide the power you will need. Good explanation on PSUs on Tomshardware I believe. Bottom line is, if your 12V rail is good enough, your lower voltage is certain to be fine.

    Another comment:
    Hardware prices can differ quite a lot between countries. So if you are situated in India, look up prices in stores and webshops located there. I myself (dutch) can ask advice in a price-range here, but then they look at their US prices and might point me towards a good deal on newegg, which doesn't apply to my region.

    So take advice on what hardware to use to heart, but do the shopping within budget yourself.

    So how much do you think the card requires then?

    I think you'll be OK with the PSU you've got (if it's the one in the link), just don't try and run SLi'd GTX560's with it.

    ok my budget says i will purchase only one gc and psu says "i will only run one"
    is this possible:-?
    battlefield 3 + 1920x1080res + ultra high settings + gtx 560 ti = gd fps with no lag ?

    I don't know as I have not tried it, I have not played BF3.
  12. overall
    (in system)everthing is f9 ,gtx 560 ti is gd choice
    final decision
  13. I am not sure about the PSU part. But with a 560Ti you can run @1080p with high settings. Check the following link on TOmsardware BF3 review. They have mentioned that BF3 is totally a GPU based game. Core i3 or Core i5 or Phenom X4 955, you are going to get the same fps with 560TI. I am from India as well and if you live in
    chennai, take a look at this
    http://www.deltapage.com/list/index.html

    According to toms hardware u should get 45 to 60 fps on high settings at 1080p

  14. this: "GTX560 Ti should be plenty to run Crysis 2 at max settings'........ not even in DX9 !
